Birthstone ♥ : Happy Birthday November Babies!

Happy Birthday to all you November babies! The birthstone for November is topaz and citrine. Topaz is said to promote wisdom and courage, whilst citrine promotes, hope, cheerfulness and health. Which one would you choose?

I have selected some gorgeous pieces from the store to highlight this month’s birthstone citrine and topaz.  The selection of topaz earrings and rings, are in two colours London Blue Topaz by Robindira Unsworth and Smoky Topaz beautifully rendered by Louise Douglas in the Coral Branch Pendant, Long Branch Earrings and the Branch Peacock Bangle.  There is also a selection of citrine, a golden yellow colour, in a choice of stacking rings by Robindira Unsworth and a bangle by Mary Odorcic.

Welcome

Lobo Luxe Goes Live!

If you’re looking for a piece of unique jewellery, something you won’t find in your usual haunts or being worn by at least  two other women you pass on the street or at your next major event or birthday party,  then you have come to the right place!

I understand, that your time is already stretched, or perhaps you live too far away to scour boutiques for quirky and eclectic jewellers, designers and artists.

The good news, I have done the hard work for you!

I have sourced many unique pieces from across the globe – necklaces, earrings, rings, bangles and brooches. There are even cuff links for the man in your life.

The collection encompasses gold, silver, diamonds and semi-precious stones, as well as funky resin and acrylic pieces.

From Australia I am proud to represent whimsical and romantic pieces from by Flick Pope of the Mornington Peninsula and embellished vibrant necklaces and bangles by Amy Renshaw of Melbourne. If you appreciate the cool pairing of  glass and sterling silver, you must venture to the delightful necklaces and earrings by Susan Frisch of Victoria.  From Sydney we boast a stylish and feminine range of pearls and resin pieces by Mary Odorcic while Perth’s Felicity Peters has a sublime collection of earrings, necklaces, bangles, brooches and rings.

Not to be outdone, artists from across the Tasman offer bewitching designs, from handmade necklaces and detailed patina pieces by Caroline Bassett of the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand, to richly detailed earrings, rings and necklaces from Louise Douglas of Nelson.

You will also find work from the U.S, from quirky offerings by Joli Jewelery from Brooklyn New York, the stylish minimalism embraced by Rebecca Overmann of San Francisco and  exotic pieces by Susan Fleming from Wyoming.  The diverse landscape of California sparks an inspiration all its own – among the finest, rich and vibrant designs by Robindira Unsworth and gorgeous adornments from Rings Eclectic, and Elyssa Bass of Georgia introduces an echo of old world luxury and charm in the shape of bangles with semi-precious stones.

North of the U.S,  I have handpicked a range from Canadian artists. It includes celestial inspired pieces by Jessie Turner from Vancouver, glass and silver, funky and vibrant pieces by Tank in Toronto and minimalistic to rich in detail works from Gillian Hillerud of Calgary.

Rounding up this stellar group of jewellers and metal-smiths is a talented delegation from the U.K.  Take a look at the whimsical and nostalgic postal and postcard range from Scotland’s Claire Hillerby and the organic leaf forms featured in necklaces and earrings by Tracy de Chevron Villette, and you can’t go passed the vibrant, quirky winged brooches by Melanie Tomlinson a veritable hot house/atrium full of butterflies, tiger moths, birds and flowers.

So… take a few minutes with your favourite brew to enjoy browsing our treasures. Allow us to help locate a special treat for yourself or a loved one.

I look forward to helping you locate a special piece that you can make your own which will accentuate whatever you are wearing.
